Saint Maud (Guest Speaker & Members’ Choice)

September 14

A private nurse for palliative care is convinced that God has a special purpose in store for her. Her new client is a terminally ill choreographer whose cynical bohemianism jars and spars with her own ecstatic asceticism.

“Disaster seems inevitable, but what makes Saint Maud so nail-bitingly tense is that it’s impossible to guess the form in which it’ll come, especially as we become immersed in Maud’s warped, hallucinatory way of seeing the world.”  Alison Willmore, New York Magazine

“I’ve seen Saint Maud twice and each time it found new ways to freak me out. Take the leap of faith.” Phil de Semylen, TimeOut
